Men's Indoor – HEAD COACH OF VOLLEYROOS

-

Following a historical season for the Volleyroos including the promotion into Group One of the FIVB World League, Volleyball Australia is searching for a Men’s head coach to take them all the way to Olympic success.

The 2015 season will present both challenges and rewards for an experienced coach. It includes the World League (Group One), involving matches at home and away from May to July against Brazil, Italy and Serbia. The Asian Championships will follow the World League, which is an integral part of the Olympic qualification.
Finally, Australia may take part in the World Cup in Japan, aiming at direct Olympic qualification.

The Volleyroos are ranked within the top 15 nations in the world following their performances at the 2014 FIVB World League, Group 2, and the 2014 World Championships.
The successful candidate will be offered a contract through until the conclusion of the 2016 Olympic campaign.

The Board of Volleyball Australia has announced following its latest meeting the re-appointment of Mark Barnard as coach of the senior women's indoor team, the Volleyroos, for what's set to be a blockbuster 2015.

Barnard took over as head coach of the Volleyroos in early 2014, and oversaw the team's first ever appearance in the FIVB Grand Prix.

Although the Volleyroos did not win a match at the Grand Prix, the team lifted its International ranking from 100 to 46th in the World.

Victoria and Queensland take back-to-back titles

Melbourne, Australia, December 8, 2014

Victoria’s University Blues women’s volleyball team has staged a remarkable comeback to win the Australian Volleyball League title for a second year in succession.

The defending champions were down two sets to love and 13-17 in the third before fighting back to beat Sydney’s UTSSU in five sets.

James Blunt has sold nearly 17 million albums and 20 million singles, and is sure to have the AIS crowd in full voice ahead of the Volleyroos first FIVB World League match on home soil. 

He has released four number one singles, including “You’re Beautiful”, and “Goodbye My Lover”. 

Currently in Australia as part of his Moon Landing 2014 World Tour, James Blunt is expected to perform his single ‘Bonfire Heart’ to the delight of the volleyball fans. 

Fans will get to see James Blunt perform for the cost of a ticket to the volleyball. 

Volleyball Australia President, Craig Carracher, was thrilled James Blunt had agreed to perform and said his appearance underlined the importance and the standing of the weekend. 

“We are delighted and excited he accepted our invitation as we are repositioning the sport of Volleyball as world class entertainment within Australia. There could have not been a better fit.” 

The Volleyroos are back in the World League after a 15-year absence, and will be keen to improve on their double loss on the road to Belgium last weekend. 

Capacity crowds at both Belgian venues helped lift the home side to victory, and Carracher is hopeful Australian crowds will be equally supportive. 

“As we host our first World League game in Australia, it was imperative to make a statement on the significance of this event. James Blunt’s performance is that statement. A performance from his World Tour at the World League.” 

Australia will play Finland on Saturday, June 7, and Sunday, June 8, at Canberra’s AIS Arena. 

Tickets are available from Ticketek.
